Critically endangered baer's pochards were captured by a photographer recently at a reservoir in Gaomi, Shandong Province in east China. Due to habitat reduction and pollution, the number of the birds is somewhere between 150 to 700 worldwide, and the population continues to shrink, based on the data released by the Red List of The International Union for Conservation of Nature.
